  2. Have a fab week! See what I'm reading here and don't forget to join in Read My Review, which this week has a Favourite Authors theme.

  3. Time travelling fashionista looks great - i look forward to hearing what you think about it.

    Pop over to my blog and see what i have been up to and let me know what you think!

    Have a great week and happy reading :D

  4. Howl's Moving Castle is one of my favorite books. I was so sad to hear she died.

    It's funny that you used spring break to finish a bunch of books, while I'm still caught by all the books I started reading on our break!

  5. Great reading week. Be sure to read Forge by LHA if you haven't already as it is the continuing story of Curzon and Isabel.

  6. Holy cow you had an awesome reading week! I need a week like that :)

  7. You certainly had a busy week there! I'm impressed.

  8. I really liked Howl's Moving Castle. I'm currently reading The Life of Christ by Fulton J. Sheen. It's really beautiful.
